Community project(s) for Texas 2017!
(Thanks to Michael Kramer and Dan & Linda Dipert for making this possible)
The Community Project will have two (maybe three) components.
1. Gilding in the new chapel of the Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital. This will be a non-denominational destination for prayer, meditation, or silence; it can also be arranged for groups for traditional faith services. The room design is being finalized right now, and it will have a number of gilded surfaces. This includes a recessed dome in the ceiling as well as the front of the altar table and also a hanging art piece. All these will be done in 23 karat gold. The dome will be laid out in a circular pattern and the art piece has many different components and figures which will be gilded. (Exact design TBD, hopefully soon)
2. A University of Texas (at Arlington) horse mascot. This 6’ tall horse will be entirely gilded in 23kt gold leaf and will be sitting outside on a corner. After the gilding is completed, the surface will be decorated with patterns of the logo and also toned and finished.
(3. A reverse gilded window wall in silver and gold…exact design TBD.)
We will have sign-up sheet soon for participants. Everyone is free to participate in the project, even if you are not registered for the conference and taking a class. However, if you want to attend the reception and other social events, you MUST sign up for the Guest registration, which is $35 and well worth it.
